Just as the days without an arrest meter was inching toward 20, a familiar name has sent it back to double zero.
Titans receiver Kenny Britt, only a day after pleading guilty to reduced charges arising from an April car chase-and-park-and-walk-away-nonchalantly, was arrested in New Jersey on two counts of resisting arrest.
Per the Newark Star-Ledger, the criminal complaint states that Britt “did purposely prevent or attempt to prevent a public servant from lawfully performing an official function by means of force or violence, specifically by refusing to open your hand when ordered to do so then pulling your hand away.” He also allegedly used his body “to push away from the officers” and allegedly pulled away his arm “while not allowing the officers to handcuff” him.
It’s unclear why the police — narcotics officers in Hoboken — were trying to arrest Britt.
Wildly talented but also wildly erratic, Britt likely would have been better off heading to Tennessee to work out with teammates. Indeed, Britt’s dad previously said that he wanted to see Kenny leave New Jersey and go back to Nashville.
“[M]y concern is not with Kenny, per se, it’s more with Kenny’s friends, and he knows that,” Britt’s father said. “He has too many friends with too much free time. He needs to be around more positive people.”
At his current pace, Britt eventually will be around a lot of exclusively negative people. All of whom will be completely positive about their own innocence.
